Development news - CMF - Jomres2jomres thin plugin

I thought I'd do a quick development news update while everybody is in lockdown due to Coronavirus.

Like everybody else my activities are severely restricted however I've been able to take advantage of this by working on the new Jomres2jomres thin plugin for the channel management framework.

Including script content in another template

I have always thought that my users should first and foremost think of Jomres as a booking toolkit. Whilst I can provide you with the basic elements of a booking website, I leave it to my users to build their own unique sites using the extensive development tools and features available.

This blog post is a quick reminder to my users, prompted by a ticket, about a little known feature in Jomres :

List of Jomres sites

In November 2019 I introduced the Jomres Syndicate Network.

This has a number of goals (none nefarious, I assure you), but one of those goals is to build a list of active Jomres installations.

This post is a quick heads up for new users, if you're curious to know how many sites have been added/updated since that time (there are many, many more that were added in the past, this is just from Nov 2019) then have a look at this list :

Coming in 9.21.0 - No Show information

No Show rates for the hospitality industry are typically between 8% and 15% for hotels, therefore it's obvious that No Shows can significantely impact a property manager's profit margins and productivity.

In the event of a No Show, the hotel or apartment probably already has No Show policies in place, however preventing a problem is always better than curing (or mitigating) the pain afterwards, so what can you do?

How I think Covid-19 will affect travel businesses this year

Like most people, I've been watching developments closely.

Health-wise, Covid-19 is unlikely to affect me, I'm still relatively young (51) and fit and healthy.

Unfortunately, the economic effect of the virus is going to absolutely hammer the travel industry badly this year. It's come at the worst possible time for the Northern Hemisphere's travel trade.

Jomres 9.20.0 is shaping up to be a good 'un, boys and girls, because it's got something for everybody.

Syndication Network

For admins there's a new Control panel...erm...panel that shows the state of your server on the Jomres Syndication Network.

vince picDeveloped and maintained by Vince Wooll, Jomres was initially conceived in early 2005 as a Mambo based solution to a client’s hotel management needs. While it wasn't originally expected to be an online booking system it quickly morphed into one as users requested more and more features.

As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was formally released as a commercial project. Since then, Jomres has become one of Mambo’s, and now Joomla’s, longest running projects. It has survived various versions of Mambo, then Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.

Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. Between 2010 and 2018 he was an integral part of the project and made many significant contributions.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and Vince have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous Valentina Template Override Package.
